Mason Jar Tissue Holder – No-Sew Home Decor


A mason jar tissue holder is a cute and easy way to add a personal touch to your bathroom. Plus you can decorate them however you like!

Hello! Michelle here from Our Crafty Mom sharing an adorable mason jar tissue holder. I’ve been wanting to make one of these for a long time and now that I know how easy they are I plan to make several for gifts.

I used pretty fall fabric and Mod Podge to decoupage the fabric onto the glass jar. If you are unfamiliar with decoupage, it is the process of gluing fabric to a surface, and it’s really simple.

The thing I LOVE about this craft is you can use your creativity to paint the jar or use fabric in any style that you like.

You can also add vinyl with a fun quote like “bless you”. The possibilities are endless!

Mason Jar Tissue Holder Tips:

Cut A Square Of Fabric To Size

Place the mason jar on your fabric and cut a square to fit around the jar. I recommend using a plain glass mason jar. The one I used had a raised design on it so it was a little harder to lay the fabric flat.

Cut Fabric Into Strips

Cut the fabric into strips about 2-3″. You can cut a small piece and then tear the fabric. It doesn’t have to be perfectly even as you won’t be able to tell once it is on the mason jar.

Add Mod Podge

Use a foam brush to add a layer of Mod Podge directly to the mason jar. Let it sit for a minute or two so it gets tacky.

Attach Fabric

Now you want to secure each strip of fabric to the mason jar. Slowly smooth the fabric down to remove any wrinkles.

Continue to add the strips of fabric until the glass jar is covered.

Trim Excess Fabric

Cut off any extra fabric from the bottom of the jar and across the top. Add a layer or two of Mod Podge on top of the fabric letting it dry between coats.

Create Lid For Tissue

To make the opening for the tissue, use the lid from the jar to cut a circle from felt. You can also use heavyweight cardstock.

A craft knife works great to cut this. Once you cut the circle cut an X in the center of the felt. Be careful not to cut too close to the edge. This will be the opening for the tissue.

Glue Felt To Lid

All that’s left now is to secure the felt to the inside of the mason jar lid with hot glue. Be sure to keep the x in the center so it’s even. You can embellish your mason jar however you like.

I glued a piece of boho fabric that I had in my stash.

Just place your tissue inside the mason jar and pull the top layer through the lid. So simple and fun to make!
